A third of us would consider missing a party this Christmas - simply because of a lack of confidence when we're on our period. A huge 3 in 4 women expect their sanitary protection to fail them at some point while they are on their period, and this is reflected in the kind of underwear ladies turn to during their time of the month.
In the end it all boils down to personal preference and being able to do whatever the hell we want with our bodies. When men go commando they boast it's 'liberating', so why can't women do the same without it being misconstrued as an act of titillation? If 'I ain't got no panties on', I'm doing it for myself.
They've been the udders that have fed our children and are now the plump cushions for their sleeping heads. They've been squeezed, pumped, prodded and poked by babies, midwives and health visitors and because of this, they are now the floor-facing members of society. They have lost their fight against gravity and now hang their sad faces in defeat.
